    Hey guys,
    I've got a bunch of Graphic and Alkon 4x5 holders in rough condition. How would I go about modifying them for 4x5 dry plate? I know I have to remove the septums but I'm just trying to think "How?"

    Thanks in advance.
    Chris

    This website offers a good guide, it's been sitting in my bookmarks waiting for a rainy day and some determination.
